    US firm sparks bidding war for Australia's Fairfax Media

    American investment firm Hellman & Friedman has kicked off a bidding war for Australia's Fairfax Media by making a multi-billion-dollar offer to rival private equity company TPG Capital's proposal, the publishing giant said Thursday. Hellman & Friedman -- former owners of US multimedia company and German publisher Axel Springer -- made an offer to acquire Fairfax at Aus$1.225-Aus$1.250 (91-93 US cents) a share late Wednesday, the Australian firm said. The offer is higher than TPG's revised bid of Aus$1.20 made on Monday, and values the publisher at Aus$2.82-Aus$2.87 billion.

Last week TPG and the Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan Board offered 95 Australian cents per share for Fairfax's leading mastheads and its lucrative Domain Group focused on property advertising. This would have left shareholders with Fairfax's regional papers, 50 percent of its online streaming service Stan and its beleaguered New Zealand business, which was recently dealt a blow when the country's competition watchdog rejected a merger with NZME.

    Fairfax Media staff strike for a week over job cuts

    Staff at Australia's Fairfax Media walked off the job for a week on Wednesday in protest at more hefty job cuts as the leading publisher struggles to cope with slumping revenues. The strike action by journalists, including those from the Sydney Morning Herald and The Melbourne Age, followed an announcement that Fairfax will cut another 125 editorial jobs -- a quarter of its newsroom -- as part of a restructure to save money.
